Ok, I don't need another bike, but I'm always checking Craigslist anyway for deals. Someone had a Trek 7.3 FX for sale for $200. He said he got it for Christmas last December, but already had a relatively new Specialized mountain bike. He was moving and just didn't want to take them both.
This bike is a little scratched up. It's the Carrera Blue color. All the parts appear to be stock, according to the Trek website, and the guys appeared to be on the level about everything, so I bought it. I have a new Felt X City D, and I really like it. I don't need this bike. But I like it, and now I own it. Oh, I did take it for a short test ride and it fits me perfectly, and seems to be in good working order.
It's tough to compare, because the Felt now has fenders, a rack, one basket style pannier, and bar ends, but I think the Trek was probably lighter to begin with. I would guess the wheels and tires alone make quite a bit of weight difference. The Felt's are bigger and probably a bit more sturdy.
So, I love my Felt, but now I also own a 7.3 FX. For $700 for both, not including taxes and mods, I think that's ok. What do the rest of you think?
